Yes, this is a blog about my own online course.
And you’re probably wondering why.
You can’t see inside our course. Not really.
For the most part it’s hidden from you.
So I’m guessing you’ve got questions about my course ‘Menopause: conversations in the workplace’.
I know you’re probably thinking, this is their course so they’re only going to tell me the good stuff.
What I’m going to do is step into your shoes and give you as much unbiased information as I can.
The last thing I want is for you to sign-up for the course and it’s not for you. I don’t want that for you. What I want are clients that are happy they’ve bought the course from me.
Check out my blog post below and see if the ‘Menopause conversations in the workplace’ is right for you and your organisation.
What is ‘Menopause conversations in the workplace’?
The course is a combination of training videos, workbooks, templates and additional resources that will help you have better conversations about menopause without the worry you’re saying or doing the wrong thing.
What’s included in the course?
There are 8 modules and a total of 20+ lessons each with lots of useful and actionable information to support you as you work towards creating your menopause friendly workplace culture.
How the modules are broken down:
1 – Menopause Symptoms and Their Impact on your Colleague and the Workplace
Have a better understanding of the symptoms, how they affect them so you’ll be able to offer support without feeling awkward or intrusive.
Don’t worry though. There are no icky bits to make you feel uncomfortable. We promise.
2 – Introduction to Difficult Conversations
The second section is all about what makes a conversation difficult.
We go in-depth into the various topics that may be uncomfortable, why they’re uncomfortable and how understanding and recognising what makes you feel uncomfortable is important to help you have better conversations in the future.
3 – Preparing for Your Difficult Conversation
Module 3 is everything you need to prepare for your difficult conversation.
We’ll take a close look at how to stay focused on the key issues for your conversation, how to think about any potential pitfalls during your conversation and how to handle them and the steps you can take to increase the likelihood of a successful outcome for you and your colleague.
You’ll learn how to prepare for each stage of your difficult conversation.
Before, during and after so you’ll know what to say and how to say it during your conversation.
You’ll uncover the secret of become a master of difficult conversations with a plan for every difficult conversation you have, you’ll learn how to address a wider type of sensitive situations and you’ll be more prepared for any difficult conversation in future.
4 – Your Difficult Conversation
Module 4 focuses on your conversation.
Here you’ll learn about the power of listening without judgement, what to do when there are gaps between your view and your colleagues view of the situation.
We’ll outline the ways you can explore a solution together to ensure your colleague feels understood and listened to.
And of course, we’ll look what to do when emotions run high and how to identify what could derail you during a difficult conversation so you know what to avoid to ensure your conversation has the best chance of going smoothly.
We’ll also take a look at some of the mistakes that are so easy to make during a difficult conversation so you’ll have an even better sense of how to handle them before they happen to you.
5 – The Legal Stuff
Chapter 5 is all about the legal perspective.
We get into the nitty gritty of the laws that protect you and your colleague, uncovering the do’s and don’ts in plain and simple language.
No over the top and difficult to understand legal jargon here. It’s kept nice and simple.
We’ll look at the laws and legislation so you fully understand the law around menopause in the workplace.
This module will give peace of mind that you’re doing everything by the book because you know your legal obligations and you’ll be able to protect yourself and your organisation from discrimination claims.
We’ll also share details of previous court cases from the UK around menopause and discrimination.
6- Resources and Templates
Module 6 is where you’ll find a ton of useful resource and templates.
You’re busy so expecting you to create a ton of policies and documents isn’t fun in anyone’s book.
You’ll get everything you need to make a department or a workplace a more welcoming and supportive place with easy to implement, best workplace solutions and reasonable adjustments and policies.
7 – Menopause Friendly Workplace Checklist
You’ve completed the course. What’s next?
This is your checklist to help you create a supportive workplace that understands what colleagues are going through, the changes you can implement to create an inclusive environment for all colleagues dealing with menopause.
Module 8 – Signposting
In this section of the course, you’ll find great organisations you can signpost your colleagues to for the best personal advice and support on how to navigate their way through their menopause, organisations that specialise in group training or talks about menopause and organisations that can support organisations like yours with other workplace challenges like age diversity.
Do I need to do each of the modules in order?
Like any course there’s a flow to it and I’d suggest you start at the beginning. However, I know you’re busy so the lessons are all available to you so if there’s something specific you want to know you can jump straight to that section.
How much does the course cost?
The complete course costs £127.
You get access for one year.

Why does the course cost £127?
I know your suspicions can be raised when a course is way too cheap. Will it deliver? Are you getting what you’re paying for?
The one thing I didn’t want was for the price to be an objection when it came to the course.
I believe knowing how to have difficult conversations around menopause will benefit you and your organisation. And I’d love to give more people access to the course than a few so that’s why it’s VERY affordable.
Is there a refund policy?
The course is downloadable so no, I don’t offer a refund. However, the feedback I’ve had about the course I’m pretty confident you won’t want a refund.
Who is it for?
The course isn’t going to be for everyone and I only want you to buy if it it’s right for you and your organisation.
– You don’t want to put the time or effort into doing the course and applying what you learn
– You don’t think understanding how the menopause impacts your colleagues or your organisation is worth the effort
– You’re not open to learning new skills
– You’d rather spend time dodging anything to do with the topic of menopause
Will this work for my organisation?
The information and templates in the course are relevant to any industry where women and those that are transitioning are employed.
How long will it take to go through the course?
The full course consists of 20+ lessons with 14 videos varying between 1.5 minutes to 11 minutes long.
There are documents, downloadable templates, case studies, best practice examples and additional resources.
To complete the full course is 2 – 2.5 hours long, but you don’t have to do the course in one sitting.
I recommend you do the course in lesson order but you’re free to dive straight into a particular lesson if you wish.
The course is intended to be as useful and helpful as it can be for you.
Who is the trainer?
Tracey Tait – that’s me – will be taking you through the course.

Why have I created it?
People feel embarrassed and uncomfortable talking about menopause and that includes managers AND colleagues. But it is worthwhile and rewarding to remove the discomfort.
The reason I created this course is to make your life and your organisations life easier when it comes to understanding menopause in the workplace.
